I know there are a lot of free digital templates out there for Becky Higgins Project Life page protectors, I love those for scribbling notes in. However, I found that when I sat down with my photos for the week, I start by sorting my photos in my album on top of the page protector because I need to move them around and visually see how they will fit. Moving the album on and off my desk got real annoying so I tried just having the page protector out in the open to pop down on my desk to stay until I finished arranging and embellishing. This worked out far better! I only had a problem of the page protectors sliding around everywhere because I wanted one of each of the plastics out to decide which to use.
So here is what I did to solve my problem, its such a simple idea I had to share! I took those page protectors (one of every design, A-J) and slipped in a solid color piece of cardstock (you could even slip in grid or plain cards if you wanted), I put the corresponding letter in the upper left hand corner with some old sticker numbers I had and hooked them all on a large binder ring. I keep this on a hook that is on my Raskog cart from Ikea that way I can easily grab it and decide what design I want to use.
Super simple right? It made a big difference for me though and now I am branching out to add more PP styles and inserts in my album. Maybe this little tip will help you too!

Awesome idea! I do my pages digitally for my PL album for this year, but this will be good to keep in mind when I work on some travel albums!
I have the raskog but what did you use to hang it from? What is it called and where can I get one? TIA!
I been planning for a DIY coloring book like this and this simple walk through really helps me to figure out my own DIY coloring book! That Honey Bee Zen Bouquet and Zen floral are just the perfect sets for current in trend coloring! What a fabulous idea for a gift ! I bought these sets during the Labor Day sale, so I m ready!
